“There is no greater value in red wine anywhere in the world today than Argentine Malbec.” – Wine Spectator
Malbec Mania is sweeping the nation. The grape thrives in Argentina, where it makes “powerfully smooth, deeply fruited wines full of spice and character … the best in the world.” (The Independent) And this new, exclusive release comes from the Zuccardi family — award-winning pioneers who helped put Argentina on the fine wine map. A textbook Malbec from their famed ‘parral’ trellised vines, it's silky smooth, packed with plum and aged for 10 months in fine oak barrels — a real crowd pleaser.
Originally from Italy, the Zuccardis are among the great movers and shakers of Argentine wine. Alberto started the winery in 1963. Today, his son José and star winemaker Rodolfo Montenegro are in charge. Their reds consistently win medals at the world’s top wine shows — most recently back-to-back trophies at the Decanter World Wine Awards. This Gran Selección Malbec is your perfect taste of this renowned family's wines.
With aromas of dark berry and spice, and flavors of juicy blackberry, plum, dark chocolate and subtle oak, this is the ultimate pairing for red meat — steak specifically. Locally, they’d enjoy Alambrado with a juicy flank steak marinated in chimichurri (a spicy, oil-and-vinegar-based garlic and green herb sauce), but it will be delicious with whichever cut you choose.
